Crafts for Kids
Placemats are easy crafts for kids to make. Crafts for kids keep little hands busy during vacations, rainy days and group activities. Personalized placemats are simple crafts where children get to use their imagination to make meal time fun. Personalized placemats make great Mother’s Day and Father’s Day presents and can be modified for special occasions
|1.||Cut the construction paper or poster board into rectangles approximately 23″ x 17″.|
|2.||Think of the person you are making the custom placemat for and start looking through the magazines and catalogues. Cut out pictures that would be of interest to that person. You can also use photographs.|
|3.||Once you have the pictures cut out, glue them on both sides of the poster board placement.|
|4.||To finish the placemat laminate it or use clear contact paper on both sides. When using clear contact paper cut it larger than the placement and be sure to get out as many air bubbles as you can. Use scissors to round off the corners.|
